A Live/Work Barn on a Brookland Lot

Sitting on over a half-acre in Brookland, this Queen Anne Victorian with a gazebo-like front porch is as generous with its bonus space as its yard space. The main level has a solarium with glass roof panels and a formal dining room with a built-in buffet. The large kitchen has butcher-block countertops and white subway tiles, forgoing typical mounted cabinetry but including a built-in shelving unit. A series of steps at the back of the house are flanked with terraced gardens and lead into the backyard and a two-story barnhouse. The interior of this accessory building has wide-planked, weathered hardwood flooring and exposed ceiling beams and joists, offering abundant raw space that can be utilized as a studio or converted into additional livable square footage.

Suburbia Close to the Silver Spring Strip

This three-bedroom bungalow in Silver Spring is tucked into the neighborhood while still enjoying on-foot accessibility to the busier Fenton Street and Georgia Avenue corridors. The home has a front porch that seems more like a patio and enters into a spacious living room with a red brick fireplace. The kitchen has white subway tiling and a butcher block-topped island, as well as a breakfast bar overlooking the adjacent dining room. An additional breakfast nook has a sliding glass door egress to the rear wooden deck. The owner's suite occupies the entire upper floor under a cove ceiling, with a built-in unit framing the bedroom windows with drawers on either side and a bench in between. The en-suite bath has a leaded glass window, double-wide basin sink and a skylit, frameless glass-enclosed shower with bench, tiled from floor-to-ceiling.

A Mod Kitchen in Mount Rainier

Over in Mount Rainier, this blue bungalow offers a lot of space at an affordable price point. Beyond the front porch, which spans the length of the house, the house enters into the living room with double exposure. A double-wide entryway leads to the dining room and has open sightlines into the kitchen, which has a stainless steel farmhouse sink, a wall-mounted oven, and color-blocked Marmoleum floors, as well as a series of windows converging in the corner. Also on this level, a sunroom serves as the laundry room and two bedrooms share a full bath. At the top of the stairs, a built-in shelving unit serves as a partition and a secluded nook on the large landing can double as an office or play area. The lower level has a separate side entrance and offers a junior one-bedroom in-law suite with L-shaped kitchen and separate laundry room.
